"The Kimberley is no longer the unreachable back-of-beyond of Australia.  With the coming of such roads as the Eyre Highway and National Highway No. 1 and tourist centres, the region is ow within the compass range of every Australian.  And yet the Kimberley will perhaps always retain the spirit and the tang of our pioneering days.  It is the country of great cattle drives to open up the land, of the fierce problems of trying to keep a pioneering toe-hold in one of the world's most remote areas, of the devil-may-care days when Broome was the bustling pearl centre of the world, of the dashed hopes of the goldrusher, of a time when things happened 'between whites and blacks that nobody will ever know about'."
